Shiloh Summer Camp is the best camp in the USA on the way it is run. From director Stephan Moore, Chauncy Julius, the office administration, Jerry the groundskeeper, the camp counselors, the instructors at various events, and working for them myself, they keep the kids motivated towards the goal of bringing them to come closer to Jesus through love. While I was down and almost out, Stephan reached out to me and helped me out tremendously by giving me something to do. My job is a school bus driver and some of the kids I recognized and told them how well of a job they were doing. Even though it's in the summer, the staff know how to keep tempers and everyone's bodies cool by providing water and Gatorade with a dedicated water team. On Friday nights, all the parents and kids have dinner and an awards ceremony along with skits on what God has done in their lives. I'm truly grateful for Camp Shiloh and it is just an OUTSTANDING place anyone can go and have fun.
I know very little about this camp.....however, I DO know Stephan Moore, and you could not find a better leader! Stephan has exhibited phenomenal and extraordinary integrity and intelligence in all the years I've known this young man....something like 30 years now....and in all those years, I've never once heard anything negative about him. Sharing a last name with him has been a source of pride for me, even though I had it first! I am prouder than I can say that he calls me "Mom!" Our skin color may be different, but our hearts pulse the same color blood and we share a deep love for our Creator.
Shiloh camp is a wonderful organization being led by a quality Leader in Stephan Moore. This is a dynamic camp that provides dynamic opportunities for youth to grow and develop spiritually, educationally, emotionally and culturally. An investment in this organization is an investment in current and future generations in Oklahoma.
I have had the amazing opportunity to serve, advocate, grow with Shiloh Summer Camp. With Shiloh you get the rare combination of committed individuals who actually know what they are doing and where they are going. Shiloh's goal is see holistic city transformation through the vehicle of sports, arts, and faith. I am excited to be a part of what is happening through Shiloh and invite those committed to change to get involved.
I am extremely proud to serve on the board of Shiloh. The impact of Shiloh on the lives of the young people who attend the summer camp and their families is absolutely transformational. It is amazing to see how much a young boy or girl can grow in their faith, gain confidence, and overcome their fears in the matter of a week. The dedication of the Director, staff, and volunteers are second to none.
This is a great sports & arts camp. The leadership and staff are all about loving on their campers and family. I'm excited about the future of Shiloh Camp. I believe the impact that will be made by Shiloh Camp will continue to grow in the Oklahoma City area and beyond. Fun & Jesus!
We at Novo are so happy to partner with Shiloh to reach out to inner-city children and youth in the greater Oklahoma City area! They have fantastic summer programming which the kids absolutely love! The leadership at Shiloh is committed to excellence, life-change, impact, results, and quality relationships. We love Shiloh and are glad to serve alongside them!
I loveeeee Shiloh camp. Stephan Moore and his staff are making such a big impact to many children's lives and their families. Shiloh is such a wonderful place of peace that is transforming lives. The children are able to communicate and make new friends. They are loved on and taught to have hope and to believe in their selves.
It's an honor to give to an organization that is well run, mission focused, accountable and making a real difference for young people in a community that needs and appreciates it.
Over the past 30 years the leadership of Shiloh has impressed me and made a very positive impact on my life. I have visited the camp during session and out of session, and see the passion the leadership has for the inner city kids of Oklahoma City. They are focused, impactful, and one of the best investments I've seen as a donor. They've done great things, but are set up for the greatest work still to come!
I have known the leadership of Shiloh for over 25 years. Over that time, I have seen incredible consistency in integrity, a heart for God, and a heart for others. As well, I've been pleased to see the impact that Shiloh has through their stories of life change.
I am extremely honored to be a part of the Shiloh Camp family! I’ve experienced a variety of “firsts” in my life. I vividly remember the first time I navigated a bicycle without falling and injuring myself. I remember the first time I jumped off a diving board into the deep end at the neighborhood swimming pool. My first tasting of black jelly beans was tragic! These memories…some ill others amusing, all fail in comparison when I think of my first summer at Shiloh Camp. The relationships forged, working for a Godly purpose & the daily excitement I feel when I drive through the front gate every morning is indescribable. This is truly my dream job.
Having served in the U.S. Army for nearly 12 years and spending 3 years overseas in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, I’ve acquired a passion for duty and selfless service. And that’s exactly what drew me to Shiloh Camp. Shiloh has an undying commitment to OKC's inner city youth. I come from a similar background that many of our inner city campers come from. I get fired up when it comes to sharing the Gospel to at-risk youth. It was extremely compelling for my family and me to join a different kind of “fight” and give back to that community. I've completely bought in to Shiloh’s vision. It allowed me a chance to fight for the spiritual liberties & freedoms of OKC youth by sharing the Gospel. This fight has yielded tremendous rewards and has left me with no regrets! FIGHT ON SHILOH!
I voluntered with Shiloh this summer with Eye to Eye Marriage Enrichment and Church ABlaze. We provided a Friday Night meal and voluntered each Friday. We had a great time interacting with the kids and parents. Great Job Shiloh for making a difference with the inner city youth.
Shiloh camp is a beacon of light in our city. I know Stephan Moore, Exec. Director, and Chauncey Julius, his right hand man, personally. Their families along with the other Shiloh staff are some of the most sacrificing and passionate people I ever met. I am also Stephan's Pastor and I have seen the affect that the camp has had on our older teens and younger kids at Church Ablaze. The camp provides a leadership environment for older youth as they operate as camp counselors. All of the youth in our church that have volunteered in the summers are always eager to return next year. To provide a camp for only $20 allows those underprivileged to participate in the best camp experience in our state. The fee is low but it is not cheap. All of the fun activities, biblical instruction, and realtationship building that takes place at camp provides a quality experience at low cost. I am proud to say I am a volunteer and a donor; I see the impact every dollar and every volunteer hour is having on the lives of the youth in our state. Not only does it provide a summer camp, but I was apart of an event they hosted for men and boys called mancave, where men and boys camped overnight and instilled Godly manhood in our youth. I love Shiloh!!!
...I get to see and hear first hnad the impact of Shiloh on the lives of Children and their families. It is real and tangible! An incredible mountain top experience in the summer that encourages, challenges and provides biblical teaching, role models and Christ centered love. This one week experience opens a door to year around activity and opportunities for mentoring, training, fellowship and fun and more for the entire family!
I've spent a total of 3 summers out there and after the first summer, I couldn't help but to return. The experience there was too amazing! God placed me there for a reason and I was blessed to have been given the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of inner-city youth and the whole Shiloh Family! I spent the first summer as a ropes instructor/part-time counselor and then the next summer as a counselor/part-time ropes instrustor and then the final summer (2012) as the head counselor/part-time ropes instructor/part-time programs but my main focus there was counseling. It's where my heart is with the kids. Getting to spread the gospel of Jesus to the kids who are in need was something way beyond me. It's humbling, it's exciting, it's tear jerking, it's emotional, it's many, many things and being a part of it changed my life forever. Building relationships with the kids is vital because they need that in their lives, someone that cares for them and willing to reach out to help them. I'm willing to bet that anyone who comes in contact with what Shiloh offers, they will leave changed and with a new perspective on life and it's all for God's glory! Not to mention, the relationships you build with the other volunteers and staff members there, it's unreal!
Shiloh is a great community organization reaching into the heart of the City to change lives and I want to be a part of the positive change that is taking place! Their current programs are outstanding and just seeing what their plans are for the 40 acres and for the community for the future makes me want to be a part of it all the more. I back them with my time, funds, and committment!!
Shiloh is an amazing place! The programs are fun and positive and the staff is sincere about the mission. Most importantly, loving God and honoring him in everything makes Shiloh such s blessing.
Shiloh Camp is an extraordinary organization for kids! There are many activities to do there. When I was younger I went fishing at a lake there and didn't know that they had that lake until someone told me. I was so excited to see the camp. It is a beautiful camp.
Shiloh Camp is an incredible organization that not only provides a unique Summer Camp opportunity to 600 kids over 6 weeks each Summer, but they also focus on reaching into the community with events and programs serving children and their families as a whole through each and every season in their lives and each and every season in the year. Approaching every detail with excellence and joy in their heart truly leading by example! When I hear the parent testimonies of how their lives have been changed and how their children have changed for the better, you really know God is working miracles at Shiloh.
Shiloh Camp is by far one the best organizations that I can say I am proud to be apart of. Growing up in the inner-city of Oklahoma can be a very tough, and challanging when all you see around you is negativity and violence. Shiloh gives kids the opprotunity to explore new faces, surroundings and activities that they may not be able to experience in thier house hold. Most importantly it offers safety and comfort for all kids, especially the ones who grow up in a rough home. Throughout the week the kids learn to trust the counslers and depend on them to lead them in right direction. As a counsler I was able to reach out to young ladies and help them to built thier relationship with God as well as themselves, and there is nothing like leading a child to Christ! All in all, Shiloh is a wonderful place full of positivity and excitement that I recommend for everyone to get to experience!
I've been a supporter of many organizations over the years and when I learned of Shiloh and their mission to transform our inner city with the love of Christ through sports, arts, and meaningful relationships I thought I would be a great volunteer for them and started researching their programs to see where I could help. Then I learned more of their mission, "...to build confidence, equip the mind and spirit and strengthen the body planting the seeds of hope for a brighter tomorrow" I realized they were so much more than a day camp. They really focus on the family unit as a whole; healing, teaching, mentoring and transforming lives...and families. I decided then to begin donating and they have lived up to my every expectation. Shiloh is a place of peace and a place of transformation.
I am 12 years old and went with my Mom to take care of the goat, chickens, and bunnies that stay at Shiloh year round. We had a lot of fun and I learned a lot about what goes into keeping all these animals and taking care of them year round. It is a great responsibility, but I guess that is what my Mom wanted me to learn and I did. Gabrielle the goat is funny, he thinks he is a dog and loves to play. The bunnies are big enough to be dogs too, I love the floppy eared bunnies. We had a lot of fun and I can't wait to go back and volunteer again and volunteer for other things. I am looking forward to going back as a camper too and someday I want to be a Counselor at Shiloh so I have a lot to learn. What I love most about Shiloh is that it is not just about a Summer Camp, they have programs and events all year for everyone, the whole family. I saw what their plans are for the future and can't wait for them to reach their goals and plan on helping with my friends. What they bring to our city is life changing and what they have planned for the future is amazing. My Mom talks about it all the time and when she brought me there I finally realized why she thinks Shiloh is so special. Now I do too and share just like my Mom.
Shiloh Camp offers anyone a very unique experience. For myself, I had the opportunity to serve both as a Counselor and member of the Programming Team at Shiloh for the Summer terms of 2011-2012. My first term at Shiloh was full of learning moments, every step of the way, it was a full job learning the inner city culture and developing ways to minister "Fun&Jesus" to the children of that demographic. During this time the children of camp were a huge blessing as I had the privilege to see walls of frustration and pain broken down through the meaningful relationships that I had developed with them. One of my personal favorite experiences was the opportunity to teach the kids at a Gospel standpoint. Shiloh Camp really entrusted in my willingness and ability to appropriately preach the Gospel in a way that was relevant and effective to the children attending camp. This aspect lead me to see the larger vision that Shiloh is trying to accomplish through its sports, arts, and relations!
